Taco Sherpa: Korean Food Truck in Chattanooga, Tennessee!Friday, April 27, 2012
I think if I was in the states, this is what I would have loved to have done: start up a food truck. It just sounds like an adventure: cruising the streets, stopping and cooking some good food, meeting good people and then driving off to the next spot. In my past life, I worked in the restaurant industry and I really enjoyed it.
Another person that I have had an opportunity to meet while working at O'ngo Food Communications is Whit Altizer. He came and took several cooking classes at our school with Chef Hyejin. He then went back to Chattanooga, Tennessee to open up a taco truck called Taco Sherpa.
As you can see from the pictures of the truck, it looks awesome. The food looks awesome as well. I really like the idea that he is adding tofu bulgogi for vegans. It makes sense and I think I would enjoy eating it as well.
The design of the truck, website, logos, shirts: everything looks very polished as well. I think that this is a concept that will take off and soon (hopefully) there will be a fleet of these trucks and a couple of stores.
The journey hasn't been easy. Apparently, the truck was stolen. Luckily it was found. I guess it is hard to hide a big food truck plastered with logos.
Here is a letter that Whit wrote me a while back:
Whit, we all wish you luck.
